From the BBC blog of documentary filmmaker Adam Curtis
: Experiments in the Laboratory of Consumerism 1959-67
: "I have quite a lot of film from the archives that was shot in the Madison Avenue agencies in the mid 1960s, and I thought I would put some sections up.

Includes a 9-minute video interview with the late Herta Herzog
